Labour Party disowns NLC president, Joe Ajaero

The Labour Party has said that Joe Ajaero, president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), is not a member of the party.

Spokesman of the Labour Party, Obiorah Ifoh, stated this while responding to claims by the NLC president and alleged chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, S.O.Z. Ejiofor, stating that both individuals are not members of the party.

Ifoh noted that the party’s National Working Committee, under the leadership of Julius Abure, was not aware of any Board of Trustees (BoT) of the party.

He described the purported taking over of the party leadership by any BoT as laughable.

Recall that the NLC had declared the re-election of Abure invalid and described the party’s national convention that produced him as “illegal.”

In a statement, the head of information at the NLC headquarters, Benson Upah, the union noted that necessary steps were being taken to ensure that the “illegality” did not stand.

But Ifoh said that since Ejiofor stepped down as the first national chairman of the Labour Party over two decades ago, he has neither attended any meetings nor played any noticeable role as a member of the party.

Ifoh further added that Ejiofor was not even known in his ward and has not paid a single dime as membership dues, which qualifies him as a member.

“Only people who understand the rules of the party and play by them, such as carrying party cards and paying membership dues, can have a say on the matters of the party. Incidentally, Comrades Ajaero and Ejiofor are not members and will not be allowed to interfere with the internal matters of the party,” Ifoh added.
